I really like it for the price. I do wish it was a tad bit more masculine. Maybe they can make it spicier/woodier and less sweet.

Abercrombie and Fitch Hedges.
I feel you. You have to ask yourself "why do I wear fragrances"? s it to smell good just for yourself? Then go buy whatever you like.
If it is to attract others to you, then I would be careful...
I think SMW gets overshadowed buy MI, GIT, and Aventus so that is why it could be considered underrated. It does get great ratings otherwise. It just isn't "the" most talked about Creed frag.
Creed, Dior, Guerlain, YSL
I will have to sample. Besides cool water, I don't care for any other Davidoff frags.
$100 for 100ml of a Davidoff frag is on the expensive side imo. Thats more than Chanel prices!! Should be...
Obama wears John Varvatos Original one according to the Macy's SA trying to sell me JV LOL.
I like but don't love Egoiste. I recommend to sample first. You should be able to find it at Bloomingdales or Neiman Marcus if you have any by you.
They are very different frags and both very good. A*Men is a sweet oriental gourmand type fragrance. Antaeus is more of an 80s powerhouse scent. Amen will probably get more compliments if thats...

I have always thought that KC frags were decent especially Black. I smelled Mankind recently and while it smelled good, it didn't do much for me. I will have to revisit it again.
The Art of Shaving is very good imo.
I also like MPG Santal Noble but imo there are other notes (coffee?) that interfere with the sandal wood.
Bleu De Chanel
YSL La Nuit
Had to go with 6
They pulled my listing and then sent me the "generic" email about Bond no 9 claiming it was counterfeit and to contact them if I have any questions.
I am selling the bottle on BN now. Forget...
No not yet. They listed a email for Bond no 9 if I had any questions on why.
It appears to be pretty vague/generic response they emailed me.
I tried to sell a bottle of Bond no 9 which was purchased from a reputable online retailer. I had it up a the popular online auction site. They emailed me and said that Bond no 9 told them it was...
Good frag for the money. I like it but don't love it. My wife likes it a lot. For some reason I only wear it after I cut the grass and shower.
+1 Dior Homme
Also check our YSL La nuit de L'homme
Pasha Fraicheur Menthe
Purchased many fragrances from them as well.
Nice! Will buy a bottle when it becomes available.
Might have to smell first. Hopefully we will get them locally
I don't dislike any of them. I really like TM Cologne, Amen, PM, PH, PC. The other ones I like but just not as much.
Bond no 9 would be an excellent house to explore. Like any other house, they have their good and bad. IMO, they are the closest niche house to Creed. I am not saying that their fragrances smell...
MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA
'REPLICA' Jazz ClubThis imo smells like a higher quality Tim McGraw Soutern blend. It last much longer as well.
I am not really sure what you mean by Aventus phenomena. Are you referring to just its popularity or because it is a niche and popular? Are you referring to because its popular and somewhat unique?...
LOL I knew I was going to catch some flack about what I said and we all have a right to our own opinion. I respect yours but I still stand by what I said.
If you drive a stock Toyota Corolla...
I think you can pull it off no problem.
IMO though, and please do not take offence to this and I do not know what you own but an 18 year old should own and wear designer scents before going to...
I haven't purchased any but everytime I go to Nordstrom, I smell them. They all smell good imo but nothing mind blowing. Longevity is an issue as well. Maybe one day I will buy some.
They are both great and affordable. If you are going strictly for warm weather, Voyage would be better. Versace PH is more versatile and can be worn all year easier than Voyage.
Also check out...
I use 4-5 sprays from the bottle. When I had a sample I would use about 5-6 sprays. Most if not all my sprays are on my skin.
Its good stuff. I don't like it as much as I used to but imo it is good smelling and quality juice.
I typcially am not an air freshener type of guy but I recently bought a new car(new to me). It has an odor to it so I used Ozium to try and help. It did help out a lot but I wanted a scent to mask...
My SMW smells about 85% the same as when new. I could tell it's not the same but still smells really good.
So you started the Aventus Hype or Napoleon?
What is the oldest Creed you own that still has some juice left?
My oldest is Silver Mountain Water. I bought it around in 2003-2004. So about 9-10 years old. I believe it was from scentiments...
Well. I didn't go cheap. I went with Chanel Sycomore based on the great reviews. I heard it is a big lighter and not as dark as Encre Noir but similar. I do sort of like Encre Noir but it is a...
Went with Chanel EB. Thanks.
So could I I'll off encore noir in the summer?
I just wish Chanel EB could be had at a discount somewhere besides ebay.
I narrowed it down to these two for this summer. I do want a frag that I could use in the Fall and Spring also.
Versace would be about half the price. So about $30 for the Versace and about $62...
Edition Blanche and Bleu.
I wonder if I should blind buy? Any comparisons?
Back to Black?
L'Air du Morrocan?
I enjoy these three.
Saw that too along with The one Gentleman. I probably would have purchased the Bvlgari if it was $19.99
I haven't tried the citrus musk but I didn't care for the Lime SEc. I actually sold it.
Pure Malt and New Haarlem are awesome scents for the fall and winter. You could probably pull them off on a cool summer night if you go easy on the trigger. I think you will love them.
I own the bay rum and Clubman. Both are nice but imo I wish they were not at strong scented. My barber used to just use the Clubman talc powder and it was lighter scented.
My two favorite...
I tried it several times. Last night was the most recent. I personally don't care for it. I can't put my finger on it but it smells like something. Maybe grape scratch and sniff stickers that...
Used to own Rocabar. I liked it but didn't love it. Great quality though.
Maybe I need to try this. Recently most of the threads I click on has somewhere your recommendation for this.
Say I go this route. Where is a reputable place to buy from that has decent prices?
The 500ml is about $0.16 a ml. The 125ml is about $0.41 an ml. I would never ever use 500ml no matter how much I like it but their is a part of me that is saying for $30 more, I will have a...
Would it be safer to go with Guerlain Vetiver for about $40 for 3.4 ounces? I like the last formulation. I have tried the new one on a card twice. On the card it didn't smell as clean and bright...
I heard that too but imo it is the opposite. Current formulation smells closer to GIT.
I like it but idk if I like it more than Guerlain even though they have a similar vibe.
I like it and would buy it BUT I think it is way overpriced. It smells good but to me it has a sharp synthetic vibe to it.
This sounds nice. Is it a "safe" blind buy? Can you compare it to anything?
While I have fragrances with vetiver in it such as Terre D Hermes, Guerlain Homme, Thierry Mugler Cologne and I am sure a bunch of others, I am looking for a fragrance that has much more vetiver. I...
Within the last year, I bought my 2nd bottle of Cool Water. My first was back when it it the market. I don't know if my nose has changed but I remember the scent being stronger with a lot more...
+1 to Pure Vanilla and Pure Hazelnut. Pure Oud wouldn't be bad either.
Great suggestions. I already own them though.
I know I probably will get slammed for this but I don't wear female marketed frags. I know many do but I just don't.
Had Rive Gauche but not anymore. I liked it the barbershop vibe but I got tired of it.
- - - Updated - - -
Can you please enlighten me on this frag?
Who sells it also for $80 or less?
I wish I could but I can't just wear one fragrances ( am envious of those that do). I do want a fragrance that could do it all. Something that I could use when I can't decide what frag to wear. I...
Not of fan of Prada frags but Luna Rossa is the best of them.
IMO they are overpriced. Also theyBurn dirty and put off quite a bit of soot (spelling?).
I don't think so either.
i just smelled a new axe body wash. It was in a transparent bottle with a sparkly looking white body wash inside. It smelled IMO like Cartier declaration or terre d Hermes.
Pure shot. Fragrance is ok BUT I really like the mint note it in. Just seems so refreshing. Too bad the other notes are not that great
Back to black
Similar vibe to ck eternity as said above. IMO I like it.
It doesnt Get much love since it doesn't smell like typical guerlain. I don't think it lacks quality IMO. It does lack longevity. Smells good and I like it a lot.
I was thinking the same thing. Maybe something for Hugo boss also.
While I still love all my safety razors, I now shave with a Dovo Straight razor. Takes longer (probably since I have only been doing it for 8 weeks) but much more enjoyable.
Since it is no longer cold out, some of my favorites are in hibernation until November. In no particular order:
Bond no 9 Riverside Drive
I wore Hearts and Daggers on Monday. I sprayed two on the forearm/wrist, one on chest, one on pulse point on neck in the morning. I showered later that day on Monday. I could still smell it on my...
I recently snagged a 4 pack of minis from Marshall's for $14.99. It came with lov and luck, born wild, hearts and daggers, and villain. I don't know what all the negativity about them is coming...
I can see the similarities but I do not find them to be exact.
Why would you blind buy all those???
Don't blind buy.
MOST SA are really bad. Recently at Macys a store associate asked if I smelled the "new" D&G Light Blue Island edition. I said no. He sprayed it and it didn't smell like anything special. I asked...
Ok. I just put on NP on one arm and Mugler on the other. Here is what I think as of now. Creed OV and Mugler are a myuch closer match but I wouldn't buy Creed OV since they are so close and Mugler...
I like it quite a bit. To me it smells like Cartier Declaration but with an earthy vibe to it. I do really like Cartier Declaration so naturally I like Terre de Hermes.
I never understood the...
No. To me cigar or cigarette smoke smells like smoke and ashes. It doesn't smell like tobacco. Smoking a pipe does have the tobacco vibe but a smoky tobacco not a fresh tobacco to my nose.
I would just use a strong deodorant such as AXE or and AXE body spray. If you must use cologne, I would go with something that smells clean and fresh such as Mugler Cologne or even Prada Amber pour...
Thierry Mugler Cologne imo smells close to Neroli Portofino. Maybe 85%. So close that I wouldn't buy Neroli Portofino for that price.
I wouldn't say Mugler is inferior, it just has a cleaner...
Azzaro Chrome Summer (not the newest version)$30 for 3.4 ounce
Issey Miyake L'Eau bleue $35
Versace Dreamer $24.95 before mark downClearance section with no price 1 ounce
I thought it was decent. Doesn't smell like Prada Luna Rossa. It smells fresher and not soapy. LBM>PLR
I haven't smelled them all but the ones I have smelled do smell really really similar. Its weird that fragrantica has the notes on the different Issey Miyake Summer frags to be different year to...
Yeah your right about how much product they received of each. Issey Miyake could send many small shipments where Burberry Summer may just send 1-2 shipments of a large quantity. Who knows. Maybe...
It doesn't seem to be hyped hear on basenotes. I am just going by how quickly it has sold at the department stores compared to other new Summer Frags
I should I purchased it when I saw it but it looks like most department stores sold out much faster of Issey Miyake Summer 2013 than any other 2013 Summer fragrance. I can still buy online if I...

How many sprays are you all using?
Maybe I should bump up the number. I usually do 1 on chest, 1 on forearm, and 1 on neck.
Basically what I am experiencing.
I recently purchased BDC. I do enjoy the scent BUT it seems that after maybe an hour or 2, it becomes a skin scent. Maybe my nose just gets used to it but I don't get the occasional whiff every now...
Speick is awesome. I never tried the EDC but have the aftershave. The only problem for me is that since it is pretty "natural", after 3 years it has turned on me. Still smells good but a good...
+1 about Extreme being a heavy Tonka Mess.
On me projections was probably average to above average.
Here is what I did. I spray 3 squirts of Burberry Summer on my right forearm, 3 of Issey Miyake summer on left, and 3 of CK One Summer on...
So far I am getting amazing longevity for this type of frag. Been on for 9 hours and I showered.
this may be my next purchase.
I am looking for a limited edition type designer scent since I do not own any and just have the urge. Today I tested Issey Miyake Summer 2013, CK One Summer 2012, Chrome Summer 2013, and Burberry...
